Cottage Garden PS08

From £42.90

A tall, dramatic, colourful, and long season meadow. It was initially designed to be sown over pure brick rubble on housing demolition sites, but finds itself equally at home in garden soils. This meadow offers fantastic variety and is jam-packed full of species that work wonderfully together, providing drama and colour from early Spring, right through to late Autumn. On very low fertility soils, an annual cut and collect is not always necessary.

One of eight beautifully designed perennial seed mixes available. Although they require a bit more effort for the initial establishment than annuals, these meadows go on to create unique and long-lived displays. Expect flowering from the very first summer season and within three to four years, robust, long-lived plants create an ever-changing landscape.
